A mom who relented to get a puppy after her children begged to bring him home a year ago, is thankful she did after the 15-month-old dog saved her family from a house fire.

The pup, a dark-haired Goldendoodle, began barking to shake the heavens and woke her at 4:00 a.m. just in time for the family to escape the raging blaze.

Another decision, to allow the kids to sleep next to the Christmas tree, may also have saved lives. The flames were engulfing the walls just below the girls’ bedroom.

“He really is a hero. He is the amazing part of this whole story,” Evelyn Janes said of Bear.

“I looked where he was barking and saw the dining room was really bright and when I looked out the d

Friendship is not just a human emotion. Animal BFFs separated during a rescue from a farm this month were reunited in Northern California.

Taken to different animal care facilities, after spending ten years together, Mr. G, the goat was not happy. He hadn’t eaten anything for four days — even when offered sweet treats. He missed his friend, Jellybean the burro.

Then someone had the bright idea that he might be grieving and the caretakers arranged for a shuttle to deliver his friend.

“We had never taken in a donkey before,” said The Animal Place rescue center. “But we knew these friends needed to be together.”

The minute Mr. G. heard him being unloaded, he leapt up from the stall

When Craig Armstrong met his cat, Millie, at an adoption center in Utah, it was a match made in mountain climbing heaven.

"She climbed up my back and sat on my shoulders," Armstrong wrote in an article for BackCountry.com where he works. "It took about four seconds to realize we were now partners and would be going on many journeys together."

Millie accompanies Armstrong on his weekend camping adventures where they do a lot of hiking and rock climbing. From the looks of things, Millie doesn't have a problem keeping up.

CONCORD, N.H. — 99-year-old Jessie White in Bangor from Maine has just graduated from college 75 years after a $5 fee kept her from getting her diploma on time.

Beal College in Bangor awarded Jessie her degree during a special ceremony on Friday hosted by Alan Stehle, the college's president.

Jessie said the special ceremony was wonderful and a lot of fun.

Jessie was supposed to graduate in 1939, but couldn't afford the $5 transcript fee.

A friend who recently learned of her decades-old predicament called Stehle, who paid her balance and set up the ceremony.

Jessie White, a Maine native, received her degree in stenography and bookkeeping.

Jessie suffered a disability from a

It looks like street magic: A food grinder, some lengths of PVC pipe, a couple of 10-gallon buckets, and flexible plastic tubing lie on the table in front of Thomas H. Culhane. He enthusiastically promises the crowd gathered at a biodigester workshop that anyone can use these items to make enough clean-burning biogas to cook food every day using the scraps from yesterday’s meals.

But his magic is backed by hard science.

Dr. Culhane, a member of the National Geographic Emerging Explorer program and a visiting professor at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., has spent the past five years extolling the merits of locally sourced biogas technology. Based in Germany, with one job in the Unit

Eboni Stevenson, a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver, won an award recently for devoting more than 3,000 hours of her time to volunteer work – a new record.

Her enthusiasm for helping other students and the community was sparked in middle school when she was paired with a mentor from the Metro Denver Partners.

When she got older, she came back to the group as a peer leader, logging hours working with girls, and also on volunteer projects there, like the annual food drive.

Eboni exceeded her school’s standard for community service by logging 3,840 volunteer hours. She will attend Colorado State University after graduation and is already planning a major in social work.
